At HMKW students of all departments get closer to their dream of working in the communications and media industry after their studies. Since the start of winter semester 2017/18 our TV studios at campus Berlin and Cologne offers all students the opportunity to experiment and to implement their own creative projects independently. The TV studios combine the functions of TV and video production, studio photography and radio and podcast recording. Our teachers undertake exciting projects such as “Plan TV” together with their students. Since April 2020, the new HMKW Frankfurt campus also houses a TV studio.
Professional film shootings, photo shootings and audio recording
Our spacious studios enable to work with up to three cameras. As well you can act in front of a green screen while creating a moderated TV interview. Our rooms were designed for studio photography and have an integrated flash unit. Last but not least live webcasts take place regularly, for example during events like the Long Night of Sciences in Berlin. Here, HMKW events were transmitted throughout the world.
Making movies and taking photographs like a pro
Students acquire all knowledge in order to operate a camera and to make their own movies. In practical exercises such as speech and performance training they learn how to act self-confidently in front of the camera and how to keep cool in stressful interviews.
Do you need technical equipment for your study projects? Our rental offers the opportunity to borrow a wide range of cameras, lenses, light and audio technology or tripods and gimbals. This service is free of charge for all HMKW students. Don’t hesitate to contact our technical staff, such as Martin Ziesche (m.ziesche (at) hmkw.de) at campus Berlin. Our staff will be happy to answer any questions.
